New York Times Morse Wire Last Day 1951


Published 1951


A recording of the last day of operation of the New York Times NYC-Washington, DC Times Bureau leased line in 1951. Published by J. Ralph Graham with added introduction by David J. Ring, Jr. who converted the file to electronic format.

Side 1 is a recording of a news story sent by telegraphers Jack Goulette and Ralph Cahall over The New York Times Morse wire to the Times telegraph office in New York, at a speed up to 60 words a minute. Dan Reeves was the receiver in New York.

Side 2 is a news story sent by telegrapher Ralph Graham from the NY Times Washington, DC bureau office over the New York Times Morse wire to the Times telegraph office in New York. Mike Moodnik was the receiver.

There is a transcription and conversion from Phillips Code to English of Side 1 and Side 2 available as text files. The telegrapher would copy the Phillips Code which was sent in Morse and type the message in plain English.

It should be noted to those who haven't thought about it, most of the telegraph traffic was sent from Washington, DC to New York but the line did work in both directions!
